sftp output to file ?


Hello,

I want to log sftp get command output:
Code:
sftp> get file3
Fetching /home/user1/file3 to file3
/home/user1/file3                                 100%   19     0.0KB/s   00:00
sftp>
If I do it with redirect operator I get:
Code:
sftp -b ./commands1 vldebitc100 >> kk.log
$
$ cat kk.log
sftp> get file3
Fetching /home/aixcronb/file3 to file3
sftp> quit
As you can see that second get command output line(which includes some statistics) is gone.
Any way to include that statistics line into my log ?


thanks
Vilius

If you are just trying to create logs of what you do.

You can use the 'script' command. It will log anything after you start it with 'script -a outputfilename'. And you stop logging with a 'exit'.

Though this will log everything including the prompts. You can give it a try to see if it does log the stats also.

Just tried that - statistics line is still missing:
Code:
-bash-3.2$ cat kkk.log
Script command is started on Fri Nov 26 11:49:23 GMT+02:00 2010.
sh-3.2$
sh-3.2$ sftp -b ./commands1 vldebitc100
sftp> get file3
Fetching /home/aixcronb/file3 to file3
sftp> quit
sh-3.2$ exit
exit

Script command is complete on Fri Nov 26 11:49:53 GMT+02:00 2010.

Hi,

Did you add the progress option in your commands1 file? This explicitly turns on the progress meter.

This seems to work on my side:
Content of commands1:
Code:
progress
cd /data/Downloads
get opera-11.00-1111.i386.linux.tar.bz2
quit
Run commands (with script): script -qc "sftp -b commands user@host" output.log

Content of output.log:
Code:
$ cat output.log 
Script started on Fri Nov 26 11:22:58 2010
sftp> progress
Progress meter enabled
sftp> cd /data/Downloads
sftp> get opera-11.00-1111.i386.linux.tar.bz2
Fetching /data/Downloads/opera-11.00-1111.i386.linux.tar.bz2 to opera-11.00-1111.i386.linux.tar.bz2
/data/Downloads/opera-11.00-1111.i386.linux.t 100%   11MB  10.6MB/s   00:00    
sftp> quit
Hope this helps.
